When first I saw a teaser for Netflix’s The Crown Series One, a drama that crept up on me as I didn’t know of its existence until its first teaser trailer aired, I was intrigued. It wasn’t until time passed, and more information, photos and I read more about the cast that I become completely immersed in the idea of this as a period drama.
I’ve never been one who followed the royal family (unless seeing multiple adaptations of Queen Victoria and Albert’s story counts), however the fact that this was inspired by a reigning queen’s early days, plus I’d seen a drama about her father (who had the crown forced on him in many ways) and this starred Matt Smith (Doctor Who!) meant that all the ducks were in a row. It was a given, I’d be watching this.

Did you see The Crown? I’d love to get your take on this biographical drama. Let me know what you thought.
Content Note: There are 2-3 uses of the f-word (over ten episodes), 1-2 coarse words in a sexual context, and a handful of sexual gestures or innuendos (i.e., a woman draws a man’s hand between her legs). A woman engages in an extra-marital affair. There are two instances of male backside nudity. The show is TVMA.
